Studies from University of California Have Provided New Data on Nanoparticles

February 19, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Biotech Week -- Data detailed on Nanoparticles have been presented. According to news reporting originating in San Diego, California, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Long-circulating polymeric nanotherapeutics have garnered increasing interest in research and in the clinic owing to their ability to improve the solubility and pharmacokinetics of therapeutic cargoes. Modulation of carrier properties promises more effective drug localization at the disease sites and can lead to enhanced drug safety and efficacy."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from the University of California, "In the present review, we highlight the current development of polymeric nanotherapeutics in the clinic. In light of the importance of stealth properties in therapeutic nanoparticles, we also review the advances in stealth functionalization strategies and examine the performance of different stealth polymers in the literature."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "In addition, we discuss the recent development of biologically inspired 'self' nanoparticles, which present a differing stealth concept from conventional approaches."
